OUR PART # GRAPHITE-M25
The Samson Graphite M25 USB MIDI Controller' semi-weighted keyboard features 25 velocity-sensitive keys, trigger pads with aftertouch, a full-featured control surface and additional programmable functions for advanced playability and customization. The Graphite M25 also features iPad/USB bus power and plug-and-play operation.
The Graphite M25 features Pitch Bend and Modulation touch-sensitive ribbon strips that offer precise control over the effects and add portability value to the unit. Its dedicated Octave button allows you to expand the keyboard to a full 4-octave range, without using any sub menus or shift keys. In addition, the controller's Sustain button enables the controller to extend notes without the need for an external pedal accessory.
The Graphite M25's controller functions feature a programmable master volume encoder, eight MIDI assignable knobs and transport controls - all of which are customizable. In addition, the controller offers a Control Change (CC) mode for sending control change messages, a Program setting for relaying program change information, and four customizable Preset options. And for easy connection to your computer, the Graphite M25 features a mini USB port and comes complete with a USB to mini USB cable.
The Graphite M25 features four large velocity-sensitive trigger pads that can be easily programmed and assigned. Use them to tap out drum beats, cue one-shot samples or start and stop sequences. The trigger pads also have aftertouch, which allows for customizable control over a variety of effects and parameters; for example, the addition of a filter or other effects to a triggered sound. Expand your options further with a second bank of triggers, bringing the total to eight.
When combined with the iPad using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit, the Graphite M25 can be used with your favorite music and synth iPad apps that support MIDI controllers. For additional mobility, the Graphite M25 can be powered directly by the iPad when you are away from your desktop computer.
For use with the Graphite M25, as well as Samson's other mini USB MIDI controllers (M32, MF8, MD13), a Graphite Editor Software can be downloaded for free from Samson's website. The software can be used to customize MIDI workflow by creating presets on the editor and saving them to your Graphite M25 for quick recall.
